Players of a certain generation speak fondly of the days when metal spikes kilties and wing-tip designs dominated the shoe market. How quickly these golfers have forgotten the heaviness and off-grass instability of old-school footwear.
All of them feature the company’s signature RifleScope alignment technology. Happy also focuses on alignment by offering a customizable design. Bloodline putters feature a unique weighting design that allows the putter to stand up on it’s own so you can get behind the ball and check your aim.
That doesn’t make your flatstick immune to the benefits of clubfitting. In fact even a basic tweak of your putter’s most innocuous specs can pay huge dividends. Here’s what to keep your eye on courtesy of the fitting experts at True Spec Golf.
None of the above matters if you can’t aim your putter correctly Experiment with offset and straight-in hosels — you’ll definitely aim one type better than the other. Then check the alignment marks. Do you prefer lines that run parallel to the target? How many lines? These are important questions that can best be answered through a proper fitting.
Available in both white and yellow the new and improved Q-Star Tour ($30/dozen) golf balls are aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds that desire Tour-like performance with a soft feel and lower price.
The new TS2 features several design elements that contribute to making it significantly longer than the previous 917 D2 including an extremely thin titanium crown that’s approximately 20% thinner.
This is DeChambeau’s second consecutive win in the FedExCup Playoffs giving him a big leg up on the competition for the $10 million bonus. For his trouble DeChambeau took home 2000 FedEx points and a winner’s check for $1620000.
The Mini Driver which TaylorMade offered in SLDR and AeroBurner models was a very cool product. It nicely bridged the gap between a driver and fairway wood. For a lot of players that was a perfect fit as the added loft and shorter shaft of the Mini gave them exactly what they needed.
The new Z 785 is also more forgiving than the past model due to a lightweight carbon crown that allows for a lower and deeper CG location. Customized adjustability is provided by Srixon’s Quick Tune system that allows for fast loft lie and face angle adjustment as well as swing weight alterations via a choice of interchangeable weights (4g 6g 8g 10g 12g).
The Pro/SL is not only one of the most popular shoes in golf it’s also big with Tour players covering the talented feet of pros like Adam Scott Louis Oosthuizen Lee Westwood and others. Unlike the casual spikeless models of the past the Pro/SL offers exceptional stability and support as well as all-weather performance.
Like the fairway woods the Z-series hybrids are not adjustable but come in a selection of lofts including 16° 19° and 22° models. Project X HZRDUS Black 85 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips come standard.
Remember the Mini came in 12° 14° and 16° models and had a 43.5″ shaft. If you want something like that a custom-fitted M4 fairway might be about right except it will probably offer even more ballspeed and forgiveness.
